SophoMORE Re-orientation

Sophomore re-orientation american university 2021

When our sophomores come to campus this fall, many will be joining us in-person and in the halls for the very first time. We want to help you get connected with the on-campus experience through our SophoMORE Re-orientation program. On August 10 and 11 in the evenings, we will be offering live on-line programs to help families and students prepare for the move to AU. We will also be sharing a collection of pre-recorded video resources.

In addition to the Re-orientation program, there will be specific events for sophomores at All American Welcome. Students should save the date for our first-ever SophoMORE Welcome Ceremony, which will be on Tuesday, August 24 at 6:30 pm in Bender Arena.
